Mexicali Police Chief Pedro Ariel Mendívil met Sunday with car club representative Jose Valdez in order to bring the vehicle street races issue to an end.

One of the potential solutions brought was to create an all-club board to stop clandestine races.

Also, the official and Valdez discussed the reopening of the Airport Highway race track that would operate under preset schedules.

However, some expressed skepticism regarding the plans.

A Facebook user named Quike Speed wrote in the Mexicali Police page that Valdez does not represent anyone, while seeking to make money out of the race track with the sale of beer.
